«And as they went up the hill to the city, they found young maidens going out to draw water, and said unto them, Is the seer here? / And they answered them, and said, He is; behold, he is before you: make haste now, for he came to day to the city; for there is a sacrifice of the people to day in the high place: / As soon as ye be come into the city, ye shall straightway find him, before he go up to the high place to eat: for the people will not eat until he come, because he doth bless the sacrifice; and afterwards they eat that be bidden. Now therefore get you up; for about this time ye shall find him.»

«And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, / The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, / And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.»
«When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him; / And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.»
«Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: / And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready.»
«And the king said, What have I to do with you, ye sons of Zeruiah? so let him curse, because the LORD hath said unto him, Curse David. Who shall then say, Wherefore hast thou done so? / And David said to Abishai, and to all his servants, Behold, my son, which came forth of my bowels, seeketh my life: how much more now may this Benjamite do it? let him alone, and let him curse; for the LORD hath bidden him.»
